Train carriages in Kyle

This rather grainy image shows several train carriages waiting on the railway siding at Kyle of Lochalsh. The stationmaster's house is in a prominent position on the hill above, providing a clear view of the railway station and terminus below. From the time the Inverness line, which originally terminated at Stromeferry, was extended to Kyle in 1897, the village of Kyle grew rapidly. Freight and passengers were easily transported to the coast, and Kyle became a port of major significance particularly in both world wars
